WISCONSIN FARMS SHOWJOGREBS latest census bulletin RE. VEALS A HEAVY GAIN IN VALUE AND ACREAGE. TENANCY ON THE INCREASE Fourteen Out or Every Hundred Properties Are Nov/ Occupied by Renters —Mortgages on Farms in State Becom.ng More Common. Washington.—From the stand point of agricultural development, the Badger state’s position is anoma lous, according to the thirteenth bul letin on Wisconsin agriculture. The state has passed out of the class of states having a large area of land suitable for cultivation and not yet so utilized, without having definitely entered the class of those, the avail able land of which has all been con verted into farms. More than 90 per cent of the land area has been converted into farms in ali except one of the southern and southeastern counties, w'hile in the northern counties less than 2 5 per cent of the land area, and in the case of five counties less than 10 per cent has been so utilized. Farm property, which includes land, buildings, implements, machin ery and live stock (domestic animals, poultry and bees), has increased in value during the decade 74.1 per cent, or more than $601,000,000. It was chiefly due to the advance of $381,395,000 in the value of land. This was associated with an increase of more than $134,000,000 in the value of farm buildings, and nearly $86,000,000 in farm equipment, in cluding implements, machinery and livestock. The average value of a fully equipped farm in 19 00 was slightly less than $4,800, while ten years la ter it was about SB,OOO. The average value of land rose from approximate ly $27 per acre in 1900 to more than $43 in 1910 and was accompanied by other changes in the average value of farm implements and of domestic animals, poultry and bees, notably in horses and mules. It is significant, according to the bulletin, that of the total increase, 7,332, in the number of farms during the decade, there was a gain of 5,674 in the class of owners and managers, and 1,658 in tenants. In 1880, nine out of each 100 farms w r ere operated by tenants. Tenancy has been gain ing on ownership for thirty years, until in 1910 fourteen out of each 100 farms were so operated. During the last decade the increase in ten ancy was slight. The relative number of farm home.*, or farms operated by their owners which are mortgaged has increased regularly since 1890. From 1890 to 1910 the number has increased 21,887, or 39.6 per cent. During the same time the increase in the total number of farms in the state was 21 per cent. A little more than 25 per cent of the amount expended for labor in 190 9 w r as in the form of rent and board: the total expenditure in creased 83.4 per cent during the de cade.

Until the other night, when Mr. and Mrs. Mathew's dined together with Mr. and Mrs. Frank Harmon and their little daughter, when the Taft resem blance was revived.

If he has been properly educated ( the major - Ity have) he will help you understand the curious machinery of digestion. To start you thinking on this interesting subject, I will try to lay out the plan in a general way and you can then follow into more minute details. Pawfiow (pronounce Pavloff) a famous Russian Phy sician and Chemist, experimenting on some dogs, cut into the tube leading from the throat to the stomach. They w 7 ere first put under chloroform or some other anaesthetic and the operation was painless. They were kept for months in very good condition. When quite hungry some un-appetizing food was placed before them and, although hunger forced them to eat, it was shown by analysis of the contents of the stomach that little if any of the digestive juices were found. Then, in contrast, some raw meat was put where they couldn’t reach it at once, and a little time allowed for the minds of the dogs to “anticipate” and create an ap petite. When the food was finally given them, they de voured it ravenously and with every evidence of sat isfaction. The food was passed out Into a dish through the opening before It reached the stomach. It was found to be mixed with “Ptyalin” the alkaline juice of the mouth, which Is important for the first step in di gestion.

Jiggs—Married the gin himself. the stomach, into which no food had entered. It was shown that the digestive fluids of stomach were flowing freely, exactly as if the desirable food had entered. This proved that it was not the presence of food which caused the digestive juices to flow, but the flow was caused entirely and alone as a result of the action of the mind, from “anticipation.” One dog continued to eat the food he liked for over an hour believing he was getting it into his stomach, whereas, not an ounce went there; ©very particle went out through the opening and yet all this time the di gestive juices flowed to the s f omach, prepared to quickly digest food, in response to the curious orders of the mind. Do you pick up the lesson? Unappetizing food, that which fails to create mental anticipation, does not cause the necessary digestive juices to flow r , whereas, fcoa that is pleasing to the sight, and hence to the mind, will cause the complicated machinery of the body to prepare in a wonderful way for its digestion. How natural, then, to reason that one should sit down to a meal in a peaceful, happy state of mind and start off the breakfast, say with some ripe delicious fruit, then follow with a bowl of crisp, lightly browned, thin bits of corn like Post Toasties, add a sprinkle of sugar and some good yellow cream and the attractive, appetiz ing picture cannot escape your eye and will produce the condition of mind which causes the digestive juices nature has hidden in mouth and stomach, to come forth and do their work. These digestive juices can be driven back by a mind oppressed with worry, hate, anger or dislike of the dis agreeable appearance of food placed before one.

A sea captain’s wife tells this story of a maiden woman, sister of one of the owners of the ship on which she once made a long voyage. She had very decided opinion on most matters, and she and the captain had many spirited arguments at the dinner table. The captain’s wife, a meek, submis sive little soul, fearing that in the heat of argument her husband might say something to offend this august passenger, was in the habit of kick ing him on the shins to hint at moder ation. Nevertheless, all these remind ers passed unheeded. One day she administered a more vigorous kick than usual, and noticed an expression of pain flit across the face of the mate, who sat opposite her. “Oh, Mr. Brown, was that your shin?” she asked. “Yes, Mrs. Blaikle,” said the mate, meekly, “hit’s been my shin hall the poyage, ma’am.” —Youth's Companion.
